Hôtel Ile de France - Hotel Paris

Opera Garnier
Built in 1862 by the young architect Charles Garnier in the Second Empire style, it was completed in 1875 at the beginning of the Third Republic. It was the greatest opera in the world.
It is interesting to note that this massive edifice built on an underground river that continues to fuel an underground lake. The Phantom of the Opera, created by Gaston Leroux, continues, they say, to carry out his sinister activities.
A must-see: the great staircase, whose first ten steps form a magnificent elevator cage, the ceiling frescos in vivid colors created by Marc Chagall in 1964 and the huge crystal chandelier weighing six tons.
It is not easy to get tickets for a ballet. However, failing to get, be sure to sample the atmosphere of gold and red velvet of the building itself (the main hall is open from 11am to 16:30).

Notre Dame de Paris
Monument impressing, Notre Dame dominates all the religious architecture of the Ile-de-France. Construction began in 1163 to end 200 years later (in 1345 exactly).
The exaltation of romantic Victor Hugo, through his novel "Notre Dame de Paris", allowed the world to discover the cathedral.

What strikes generally the guests it is the facade consisted of majestic doors and stained glasses in the form of rosettes, but also these strange statues, among the saints, known as "gargoyles", and give the impression that they will fly.
To describe facades and the body of the monument would be too exhaustive: meeting on the Island of the Town and contemplate one of the most beautiful cathedrals of France.
